Social Distancing Tips For a Fun Halloween During COVID-19

The coronavirus has changed life for everyone in the world. It has affected how we interact with each other and canceled many events this year, including Halloween in some parts of the country. With a few social distancing tips from Safeguard Self Storage in New Orleans, LA, your children will not have to miss the spooky fun on Halloween night.

3 Social Distancing Tips During Halloween

Turn your home into a haunted house.

Ghosts, ghouls, and goblins—oh my! Transform your home into a haunted house fit for zombies and other scary things. Stock up on decorations like spider webs, strobe lights, and hanging ghosts. Battery-operated sound machines can create spooky noises while eerie music on a Bluetooth player sets the mood. If you have limited space in places like your basement, garage, or spare bedrooms, our New Orleans self storage units on Erato Street can help you utilize more space for your DIY haunted house.

Go on a candy scavenger hunt.

Hunting for eggs on Easter is fun for kids of all ages. What about letting them hunt for candy on Halloween? If they are unable to go trick-or-treating, let them go on a candy scavenger hunt in their own backyard. You can hide candy in a variety of places and set a time for your kids to find it all. Take it one step further by creating a Halloween-themed piñata. Not only will they be able to search for candy, but they can also get together and break open the piñata to discover the surprises inside.

Tell ghost stories with video chat.

Trick-or-treating is all about getting together with friends and visiting every house on the block. The coronavirus is preventing friends and family from walking the sidewalks at night in search of tricks and treats. That does not mean they cannot get together online for some scary ghost stories. Install the Zoom app on your phone or computer, and let your children get together with their friends for some spooky stories on Halloween.
